Michelin run flat tyres (Zero Pressure tyres)
What are Michelin run flat tyres?
Michelin run flat tyres are designed with safety in mind, to keep your vehicle under control following a loss of air pressure in the tyre. As more manufacturers are starting to equip their vehicles with run flat technology, run flat tyres are rapidly gaining in popularity.
How do Michelin run flat tyres work?
Michelin run flat tyres, or Zero Pressure (ZP) tyres are based on Self Supporting Tyre (SST) Technology. SST Technology is essentially radial tyre technology with the addition of internally reinforced sidewalls. As their name suggests, run flat tyres are able to run on zero air pressure for a limited time. Crucially, these types of tyre should only be fitted to vehicles with a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS). The tyre pressure monitoring system is in place to alert the driver of a loss of pressure in any one of the run flat tyres. The run flat tyres are only designed to run at zero pressure at a set speed for a certain distance.
Michelin manufactures two types of run flat tyre: Zero Pressure (ZP) and Zero Pressure Short Range (ZP SR).
Zero Pressure (ZP) tyres allow the driver to continue their journey with a flat tyre for up to 50 miles at speeds of up to 50 mph.
Zero Pressure Short Range (ZP SR) tyres allow the driver to continue their journey with a flat tyre for up to 20 miles at speeds of up to 50 mph.
